Yep, I Love Him

Joe walked in the door after a later-ish meeting last night.

He handed me the keys to his car and said something along the lines of  "Go, grab a magazine and go out to eat.  I've got the kids, take a break!"

Ummmm, OKAY!

It was pretty wonderful, I must say. For all the love I have for my kiddos, sometimes a break is fantastic, too.

I stopped first at Dorothy Lane Market and debated over things like People or US Weekly, Ohio magazine or Oxygen. This process took more time than I'd like to admit.

I had the Portobello Wrap at Boro Bistro. It's such a girly place. I love it. They even put an orange wedge in your water. Lemon is so yesterday.

Y'all (my friend, Rachel is from Texas...she's rubbing off on me), I chewed my food. I even took note of each ingredient I was enjoying. Divine. I went back and forth between eating, reading (I chose People and the Ohio magazine) and listening to the trendy music playing overhead. I daydreamed about the songs I would add to my blog if I was one of those bloggers who actually knew how to add music to their blog. I'm not, by the way, but someday.

I came home all giddy and recharged. Just the break I needed. I think it was even better because it was unexpected.

Yep, I love him.



  1. Ahhhh that was nice of him. I don't know if you live close to a Barnes and
    Noble but I love to go there and get a stack of mags and sit in a comfy chair and look through them.
    A very cheap date.
    Do you care if I borrow a couple of pictures from your blog to feature you on my blog. If so, let me know.

  2. Hi
    Angie. Can you send you blog address to my email. I am going to make a post about you. I'm not very computer with it. I know mine is blog spot but didn't know for sure what yours is. Do you care if I say you are from Springboro. I can just say Ohio. I want to use the picture of your kids having tea. Thanks.

  3. I found you through Debby! What a nice gal to find you for us! I am a Nana, about Debby's age, and your little boys are beautiful! You need to get a bit more recognized though. Do you know DebbyDoo's blog? She promotes new/smaller blogs and gets them recognized.

    I remember days of "getting away" from the kids I loved! Hugs- Diana

  4. I came from Debby. I am glad to meet you. Your husband sounds wonderful. That was so nice of him to do that.

  5. That sounds lovely! What an awesome surprise from your husband! If mine did that, I think I might fall out of my chair. And then run, before he changed his mind :) Glad you got a few minutes to yourself!

  6. What a great guy.... So nice to take time away and rejuvenate. Makes you a better mom.

    I am stopping by from Cozy Blanket and am now a follower... Looking forward to getting to know you.
